Miro Health
Research Study for Caregivers and Patients

The Miro Health Study is a research project aimed at testing an iPad App called Miro that measures neurological functioning. We are looking for both healthy adults and patients to join our study who are between the ages of 18-95, who speak English as a first language, and who have completed high schoolParticipants will need access to an iPad in order to participate.

If you decide to participate, you'll be asked to do the following:

            -- Complete a short pre-screening questionnaire to see if you meet inclusion criteria for participating (this takes about 5 minutes)

            -- Read and sign an Informed Consent Form that describes the details of the study

            -- Complete some screening questionnaires about your health including neurological and psychiatric history to confirm eligibility

            -- Show us your government-issued photo ID to confirm you're who you say you are

            -- Perform a cognitive assessment called the Telephone Interview for Cognitive Status            (TICS) over the phone or video chat (this takes about 10 minutes)

            -- Play some games in the Miro App on your iPad (this takes about 1 hour and 15             minutes). We may ask you to play these games once, or three times over the course of 3 weeks depending on your responses to the screening questionnaires and TICS.

As compensation, we will pay you up to $160 in Amazon gift cards for completing all parts of the study: $40 after Session 1, $40 after Session 2, and $80 after Session 3Note that you may not meet eligibility requirements to complete all sessions.
